We made a point to stop here as we were vacationing this summer in Vermont. Such an adorable farm and so much opportunity for learning. We took my two year old daughter a few weeks ago and she keeps begging to please go back to the farm! All of the animals were very friendly and it was obvious at how... More

Really cool farm with animals and an amazing museum about farm life and Vermont agriculture. Great documentary film in the visitor's center giving the history of Marsh, Billings, and Rockefeller. Pretty cool cows, horses, and chickens. Friendly staff willing to answer questions and share stories about the farm and animals. Several of the young cows were loudly moo-ing to get... More

Our son loved interacting with the animals and even seemed to enjoy the visit through their museum. Normally, static displays don't do much for his 7 year old always on the go mind but these were well done.

We stopped by the Billings Farm to see the milking of the cows, but the process is now fully mechanized and that left no milk to see as it runs straight from the cows through a vacuum system to a holding tank for collection. The grounds are nice and the staff knowledgeable and friendly. Nice area for picnics, walks, and... More

A bit pricey, but a nice way to spend a couple hours learning about the diary history and getting to meet the cows and sheep:-)

We have visited over 70 national Parks. This park is unique with a very unique history. We participate in all the junior ranger programs and this was very well done. Be sure to watch the movie in the visitor center, very informative and very well produced. We did not have time to visit the farm but it too appeared to... More

The inter-activeness of Billings is fabulous. Any kid and grand-parent will have a fun half day there
